The next couple lines are written over a picture of outer space, several spacecrafts and a city-ship flying through the stars: “For a long time we thought we were building mirrors.

thanks science side of tumblr: ice-block Remember when someone on tumblr would post a rhetorical question like " wonder why all us neurodivergent people love the rain so much" and someone would make up some garbage like "well you see rain carries negative particles (which is why you get depressed if you drink rainwater) and since neurodivergent people are depressed the negative particles feel natural to them uwu" and everyone would be like thanks science side of tumblr satanshagger there are reasons for this, actually! tumblr is set up as what is scientifically referred to as a "factual state" - meaning in short, that our brains perceive the majority of what we read on it as factual (source) this is why there are so little colour schemes on it and why dark mode/low colour mode took so long to be implemented, as tumblr didn't want to mess this up. here's a list of colours wihich help to enhance that mindset and manipulate people into thinking that what they are reading is true - you'll see that almost all of the previous shades of blue used on tumblr are there. but why is this a thing? studies have actually shown that tumblr aims to push information on us that will, actually, assist governments. yeah. it's scary. that's also why tumblr was sold for such a low amount - because if it fit these specifications, it would have to be listed here; a site, for those of you that don't want to click the link, that lists all well known social medias that cannot legally be used to spread propaganda. which is also why facebook is up in arms about that whole political advertising shitstorm tumblr is generally advertised as the "shitty blogging website with bad staff because they want to cover this with incompetence, or an impression of it studies show that our brains are not able to link sinister means with a feeling of utter uselessness. tumblr's users are often also struggling with mental health issues it is thought that up to 68% of users may be depressed and therefore, easier to target with this information. dr is that you absolutely should not trust half the shit you see on tumblr, because unfortunately, up to 13% of blogs are only created to spread false information for a larger purpose additional sources a list of blogs confimed to be spreading false and possibly harmful information a list of topics that are usually filled with false information in posts extra information on what governments are the worse for this and why and, finally, what you can do to keep yourself safe from this ice-block Ok first of all I applaud your dedication to this and second of all I read every source and I encourage all my followers to do so as well thanks science side of tumblr thanks science side of tumblr
